* In ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'', Shigure is told not to use bladed weapons against a group of attackers [[LudicrousGibs for obvious reasons]]. So she slices apart their weapons with a wooden rice spoon.

* ''OnePiece'': SupremeChef Sanji normally refuses to use knives in combat, despite being extremely skilled with them. He reasons that a chef's knives are tools for preparing food, not weapons. However, against one opponent that uses food as a weapon (which trips his BerserkButton, he ''hates'' people who waste food) he does not face this restriction.

* In ''RanmaOneHalf'', there is a thin line separating any given martial artist from being a practitioner of this trope or an ImprobableWeaponUser. Of the main characters, however, Ranma Saotome and Akane Tendō are the ones who come closest to this, being ready, willing and able to pick up and use anything that is around as a weapon. Being practitioners of SupernaturalMartialArts may disqualify them though... how is a lawn roller (a large cylinder of concrete attached to an iron handle bar, used to flatten landscapes) an improvised weapon when you're strong enough to throw it?

* Kiri, the male protagonist of the manga ''DoubleArts'' attempts this. He cobbles a sword together using a large number of much smaller knives thrown at him by the ''very guy he's fighting.'' Subverted in that, while impressive, Kiri's improvised weapon fails, breaking on impact.

* Cilan, in an episode of Anime/{{Pokemon}}, had his Pokemon incapacitated due to poisoning. So he had to fight off a Stunfisk with a fishing rod. He is able to keep the Pokemon at bay, [[spoiler: and sufficiently weakens it enough to catch it.]]

* ''GunXSword'': Ray Lundgren's [[HumongousMecha Vulcan]] was originally a mining machine his wife built. In the series proper, it's a MightyGlacier with [[MoreDakka a lot of guns]] and seems to be capable of producing more power than an Original Seven armor.

* In ''HeroicAge'', the Silver Tribe gets major improv points for using an ''exploding planet'' as a weapon. When humanity ignites Jupiter in the hope that the fireball will consume the Silver Tribe fleet, they respond by using their shields to collapse the planet-turned-protostar into what appeared to be a gigantic ''nuke'', and directing most of the resulting explosion at the human fleet.
